As more companies of all sizes and sectors create new business models and operational efficiencies by connecting their devices, their success depends on their ability to ensure the security of the devices, data and access to both. Ericsson predicts that approximately 70 percent of all wide-area IoT devices will have cellular connections by 2022.

"In this age of digital transformation, protecting connected devices and the valuable data they generate is critical for the long-term success of the exploding IoT market,” said Jean-Michel Puiatti, Kudelski Group Senior Vice President for IoT Security. “By combining our battle-tested security technologies with IDEMIA’s connectivity solution, we enable companies to deliver secure, connected products to market more quickly.

"Our alliance with the Kudelski Group gives the IoT market a clear signal. We are thrilled to apply our expertise to help bolster IoT security backed by state-of-the-art technology providing for enhanced user trust in everyday devices,” said IDEMIA Executive Vice President for Connected Objects activity Yves Portalier. “This partnership for security is even more essential considering the tremendous potential for connectivity offered by 5G networks.”

The new global partnership integrates IDEMIA’s DAKOTA IoT (eUICC) and TSM (Trusted Service Management) solutions with the Kudelski IoT Security Platform. DAKOTA IoT is a secure hardware and operating system that allows device makers to remotely download mobile operator subscriptions to the connected objects deployed in the field and authorize them to use the network. The Kudelski IoT Security Platform provides device security (firmware lifecycle management), data security (transport- and application-level authentication and encryption), access management (token-based feature activation) and active security (monitoring and AI- based anomaly detection) to device manufacturers. The integration of the two solutions in single device makes sustainable IoT security more widely accessible and decreases the time to market for new IoT solutions.

The integrated platform is fully compliant with GSMA standards and uses Global Platform Alliance recommendations to ensure that security can be updated over the air using standard GSMA mechanisms across all worldwide networks.

IDEMIA’s subscription management platform and DAKOTA IoT eUICC provide a turnkey solution allowing mobile operators to remotely allocate subscriptions to connected objects. This comprehensive solution offers the most efficient, secure and transparent technology possible to serve the connectivity needs of mobile operators and to deliver a seamless experience to end-users.
